2016 has been a productive strongman season returning back to the sport. In June I took third place in the Open SHWW with United States Strongman. In September I won the HWW America's Strongest Master with Strongman Corporation. I would like to continue to make improvements and push my performance considerably for next year.

As of right now, I have no competition plans until next year. I am not sure what they will be but am using this down time to address some weaknesses, particularly 12" log and circus DB. Grip training will return as well.

Looking ahead to 2017, the next closest competition in my mind will be grip in some form. While I am not ready to fully commit to mainly grip training, I would also like to bring my skills back up to par.

It's time to plug 5-3-1 in starting next week. Another grip expo has popped up onto my plate so it would be a shame if my grip was gross and out of shape. Sorta like I feel right now. Ha! Loving getting back to work with purpose and focus. Lots of fun stuff coming up for the competition and other events.
